Aphorism 74

The higher of us create art, music, poetry, and thought — they seek more than all that is animate and non-human and they seek more than most that are human.  They are the best souls amongst us, but they are not rich, powerful, comfortable, or known.

A few may rise into the known via their unchallenged genius, but the baser of us uses them for their own banal interests –their torch or delicate flower offered to us is snuffed out or trampled upon, or used for a profit or tweaked for an agenda.  We pick the wrong role models and heroes and exploit the genius and authentic spirits to perpetuate our mis-guided direction.
